A Message From Mrs. Dunn

I want to take a moment to share some thoughts with you

as we eagerly prepare for an exciting football game on Thursday.

The tremendous enthusiasm generated by this event is evidence

of the pride we all feel about our school. You give the best

of yourselves in your academic pursuits, artistry, performance

in music, and theater including the performance of the

Disappearance of Daniel Hand enjoyed by all this past

weekend. Your excellence in athletics is demonstrated by the fact

that every fall team participated in the state tournaments this fall,

and bringing home state championships in Volleyball, Field Hockey,

Swimming and Diving and Girls Cross Country.  You bring a spirit to

our school each day that fills the halls with excitement and promise.

We are very proud of you.


Every adult in this building puts concern for your health and safety

before all else. It is our highest priority. I ask that you show good

judgment before, during and after the game. We know that you

understand the difference between proper and improper conduct

and we expect that you will demonstrate good sportsmanship

throughout the event. This game should provide wonderful

memories for our coaches, players and fans and we are counting

on you to make certain that it is remembered for what happens

on the field. With the impending weather, please be careful as you

travel to and from the game. We look forward to seeing you there

and together celebrating the accomplishments of our

Blue Wave Football Team.
